My fiance and I took the PADI open water certification diving with Barbara. We did the whole course in 4 days at the beginning of our vacation. It was just my fiance and I, so we received a private course. Barbara is very clear with her instructions (above and underwater), so my fiance and I picked it up pretty quick. She is very safety oriented and kept an eye on my fiance and I the whole time. I was very nervous for our first 2 open water dives but I knew that I could rely on Barbara the whole time (she even noticed I was feeling a little seasick on the boat before I even said anything). My brother came along with us and he was already certified, Barbara organized our open water certification dives so he could dive with us. My brother also commented that the dive equipment was in really good condition (something, he said, that is not common to all dive shops). After we were certified we dove a few more times with Barbara: drift dives which I highly recommend, they were so much fun! And we also dove in the Cenotes with Dario, and it was surreal, like visiting another planet! The largest group consisted of 5 divers, but most of the time we were 4. Barbara recommended a restaurant next door to the dive shop, "Como Como", which was really good (we went back twice). If we visit Playa del Carmen again, we will certainly dive with Pluto Dive! : )
Thank you so much Barbara and Dario!
